A lottery winner from the UK who has chosen to remain anonymous has bagged the mouthwatering sum of £170million after picking the lucky numbers in the EuroMillions lottery.
Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at The National Lottery, said: “One incredibly lucky ticket-holder has scooped the enormous £170million EuroMillions jackpot.
“They are now the UK’s biggest ever winner. It’s been a fantastic year for UK EuroMillions players, with an amazing five jackpot wins.
“In June, one lucky ticket-holder, who chose to remain anonymous, became one of the UK’s biggest ever winners after scooping a £123 million jackpot.
“As always, the team are on hand to support and help guide the new winner as they start their adventure with their life-changing win.”
Other lucky winners this year include Patrick and Frances Connolly from Northern Ireland, who won the £114.9 million EuroMillions jackpot in the New Year’s draw and Ade Goodchild, 58, who banked £71m in March and quit his job at a metal factory.
